God gave Daniel a glimpse into the ultimate conflict that lies beneath all of the human conflicts that we see: man in prideful rebellion against the God who reigns and rules. Alistair Begg reminds us that Daniel’s vision is not recorded to spur our curiosity, but to provide real relief and encouragement to troubled saints. Like the exiles who encountered opposition and oppression when they returned from captivity, God’s people can find encouragement to stand firm and stay faithful in the knowledge that God is in control.
1In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.
